Some links I never got around to sharing during the week:
Thanks to The Grand Narrative, this week I realized not only that J goes by J.ae nowadays, but also that No.5 from her most recent release, Sentimental (out February 3), has been written by Humming Urban Stereo mastermind Lee Jeereen. Apparently it’s been rejected by TV stations because of indirect advertisement: Korean Sociological Image #32: Censorship & Indirect Advertising. Looking up the release at Bugs I found that electro/house act Mad Soul Child had not only made a song called Angel’s Disguise for the special album, but also produced the whole release together with J.ae.
Just like I did, refresh_daemon filled the void left by Bluedawn with adultchild. Although while I much prefer their debut effort, he doesn’t seem to mind their second album that much:
– Inbox: 어른아이 – Dandelion
And though I’m not sure why, after learning their name via the Happy Robot blog last week I suddenly can’t go a day without seeing 10cm mentioned somewhere. Check them out on YouTube:
– 10cm – 오늘밤은 어둠이 무서워요
– 10cm – 아메리카노
– 10cm – 눈이 오네
